This is quite a picture, but the photographer is selling the negative for $9 million. Hunh? A Rainbow over Mount Vesuvius for that incredible price? I wonder if anyone will buy it?
I also wonder how many of you watched the debate last night. I certainly didn't. Not much into politics at the best of times and certainly not American politics. I hope she slaughtered him.
Sad to hear about Arnie Palmer on Monday too. A much beloved golfer. They credit him with bringing the average Joe to golf. Prior to that it was considered a somewhat elitist game.
Forgot to mention, still hobbling around although I did bowl all three games on Monday afternoon. Pretty painful though. However, not painful enough to stop me I guess. I now have my anti-inflammatory cream so will use it and see what happens. Fingers crossed please. I am so tired of this pain and not being able to just get up and cross the room without my stupid cane. Plus I keep forgetting when climbing/descending steps or stairs it is 'up with the good and down with the bad' and it hurts less if you do it that way.
Chicken stuffed with brie, what could be better?
Almond-Crusted Apricot-and-Brie-Stuffed Chicken
Brie creates a luxurious, creamy filling for these stuffed chicken breasts—and it keeps the chicken
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts with wing bone attached
2 oz (60 g) brie cheese, sliced with rind removed
4 dried apricots, finely chopped
½ cup (125 mL) sliced almonds, divided
1 tsp (5 mL) minced rosemary
1 tsp (5 mL) each coarse salt and freshly cracked pepper
½ cup (125 mL) fresh bread crumbs
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 Tbs (15 mL) butter
1 Tbs (15 mL) olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
2. With a knife held horizontally and starting at the thinner side, cut each chicken breast in half, but not all the way through, and open like a book.
3. Arrange brie over chicken, leaving a ½-inch (1 cm) border uncovered. Sprinkle with apricots, ¼ cup (60 mL) of almonds, rosemary, salt and pepper; close chicken, pressing around edges to seal.
4. Combine bread crumbs and remaining almonds in a shallow dish. Dip chicken in egg, then dredge in crumb mixture, pressing gently to coat completely.
5. Melt butter and oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken until golden, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to oven; bake until cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes.
